|Study of Blood Samples From Newborns With Down Syndrome
|Closed to Enrollment
|Pediatric Cancer (Oncology)
|Transient Myeloproliferative Disorder (TMD)

Diagnosis of TMD defined as:
Trisomy 21 positive leukemic blasts documented by biopsy of any organ (including >5% non-erythroid/non-lymphoid blasts documented by bone marrow aspirate or biopsy). Infants with isolated trisomy 21 positivity identified only in the leukemic blasts are eligible for study
